Splatoon 2 <コ:彡


Whoa… huge new updates for Splatoon 2 in the next few weeks.

That’s new maps, a new game mode, new hairstyles…wow! Says there’s a new Salmon Run map, too!

The new game mode looks really cool! I will definitely revisit Splatoon 2 once this hits.


Not just new maps, old maps, too! I saw Arowana Mall and Walleye Warehouse in there!


Yup! That’s one hell of a free add-on!


that’s nuts!!! Keep us posted on the release dates!! I’m still deep in Mario Odyssey, but I’ll want to dive in to this again!



Update looks awesome! I’m excited about the new mode too!


The first stuff hits on Thanksgiving according to that trailer. New battle stages on Friday. Pulling in some of the best old maps is awesome.


From Polygon:

The newest battle stage, called MakoMart, will join the game on Nov. 24. Three more — Shellendorf Institute, plus the return of Walleye Warehouse and Arowana Mall from the original Splatoon — will arrive soon.

A big box store stage released on Black Friday. Hilarious.

The level cap, currently maxed at 50, will increase to 99. At that point players will have the option of resetting their level display to include a star, while starting over at level 1.

Man, I never got up to 50 in the first one, and now it goes up to 99? Good lord.

Inklings are also getting four new hairstyles, and players will be able to swap their gear between battles without exiting to the lobby.



Ascii art looks fantastic on mobile.

Yikes! That’s great!

Yeah, seriously. My friends and I always laughed at the levels of some people so soon after release. I’ve sunk a lot of hours into Splatoon 2 but I’m only around 30. 99? Whoa. I think in Splatoon I did cap-out but I hammered that game.

I’m S+ on all solo ranked modes in Splatoon 2 which has reduced my enthusiasm to keep chipping away at MP. Ranking up seemed a lot harder in the original. I’d love to do team ranked but my friends aren’t really around enough, not to mention, they’re both scared to using anything but Aerospray :-p


Oh, and Nintendo added video recording to the Switch and Splatoon 2 just after I’d hit S+ across the board.

All those splats, lost, in time, like… ink… in the storm.

So do games like Splatoon have regular built in online MP like a console game or is it just with friends using those codes and such.


I haven’t done much Splatoon MP, but it has a sort of matching lobby where you’ll get put in games. I.E., it’s not just friend code MP.


It has standard ranked and party matchmaking for both competitive and for the co-op Salmon Run mode.


Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion available tomorrow. $19.99. Single player that adds Octolings as playable characters. New Amiibos later this year.


Part of me wants to support them on principle, but I didn’t find the original single player campaign all that fun so it’s a hard sell to pay $20 for something I’ll probably get bored of a few missions in.


You should have a look at it. What I saw was pretty impressive.


I loved the single player levels especially in Splatoon 2. Can’t wait for this expansion!


I’m amazed that it’s available tomorrow!
